I'm a huge Fairport Convention fan. That said, Richard Thompson has, in my opinion, at least equaled the group output with his own and probably surpassed it. His output has continued to be extraordinary. Fairport has had some notable material since his departure and soldiers on as well. Nice he continues to stop by the old neighborhood occasionally as well. ...

Excuse me being picky but it was 'truly great artists' you asked for first - not ICONS. I think we can agree there's a difference (Marilyn Monroe - definitely an icon, maybe not a truly great artist). Dylan and McCartney will remain icons until they die, even though their 'truly great' days are behind them. Maybe I can't defend Tom Petty as truly great (I just happen to really like his stuff) but Jerry Douglas and Bela Fleck are world-class musicians by any standards......
